What motherboards support 7800x3d out of the box without an update?

Go to solution Solved by Eigenvektor,

Likely all of them by now. The CPU was released more than a year ago. So unless the board has been sitting in storage for a year, it likely has the latest BIOS out of the box. And if you get a motherboard that supports BIOS flashback, even that is a non-concern, because you can update without a supported CPU installed.

Upgrading to a 7800x3d soon and I noticed a warning on pcpartpicker about the motherboard I picked needing a specific bios to run the 7800x3d.
What motherboards support the 7800x3d without an update since I don't have a spare am5 cpu to update the bios.

Most am5 boards have the ability run a bios update wihtout a cpu(or without a supported cpu). Just pick one of those.

The Asus X670E-E works great for me.  It has worked just fine, right out of the box.

 

Take care and good luck.

Any AM5 motherboard manufactured in the last year should have an updated BIOS. The CPU is over a year old.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

Not really an issue with AM5, so I wouldn't worry about it. Ryzen 9000 series will be another story though.

AFAIK every motherboard's launch BIOS does actually support the 7800X3D as the launch AGESA has support for it. Not every motherboard advertises support for it out of the box though, as the 7800X3D does need certain BIOS optimizations for the performance to not suck that weren't present until a few months after Ryzen 7000's release, hence why you get that warning on PCPP. ASRock's CPU support page explains it the best, where there's a bootable section and a validated section, and since the AGESA version is what determines CPU support, all the motherboards using a given AGESA version should boot with a given CPU. 

 

I wouldn't worry about it, even if the CPU wouldn't work on the launch BIOS revisions it's been over a year at this point, so you should get up to date BIOS revisions.

Even if you bought a mobo year ago they supported it.
